Women’s Wage Gap

Problem: Women make $0.83 to the man’s $1.00
Opportunity: How might we provide users with fact-based salary information?
Solution: Develop a data gathering app for workplace equity within advertising


There has been a high level of awareness of the gender wage gap, but very little action. 4 billion women of working age are not afforded equal economic opportunity.  The collective amount of money women in the workforce will lose to the wage gap each year is $1.6 trillion.

The Logo

We wanted to create a dynamic logo to match the reality of the gender wage gap. The current letter height for each character represents one of the four values represented in the Women’s Wage Gap 2022 chart.

For example, the “S” represents $1.00, while the “G” represents $0.83 of that one dollar. Our hope is to continue updating the logo as the years progress until all of the characters align. 

The App

A free informational app that provides resources regarding salary negotiating, agency policies, and salary statistics. The information is sourced from users sharing their current gender, role, location, agency and salary within the advertising industry.

All information shared remains anonymous. Users are able to see where they stand salary wise within their role and remain informed on the current state of the wage gap.

Users have the option to search for specific agencies to learn more about their culture and policies.

Sage Award

Awarded to an advertising agency annually for prioritizing gender equity. Similar to the logo, the Sage award will change annually based on how much progress is made.
